8:39pm
ali who prompted professional wrestling to itself get more theatrical tonight we look back on port and country one -- sport and country one loud boxer changed 50 years ago tonight, with me now, former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, larry holmes, and jim gray, from my money, the best by who ever covered boxing ever. so two champs with us. larry, to you first, i said you were the rodney dangerfield of boxing, you came after muhammad ali but the fact is that you stayed on longer as champ. only joe lewis, held that title longer, and you fought everyone, you done dodge anybody. -- you didn't dodge anybody, looking back at ali and clay ha he did then, highway he changed box -- how he changes boxing
8:40pm
then, what do you snj. >> he did a great job. he was the martin luther king of boxy, giving opportunities and pride. as far as sonny liston, you know, i was a ali fan, all the way, i think what he did was fantastic. because i was young, i was rooting and rooting for muhammad ali. so, you know he could do no wrong in my book. neil: you were a training partner of his in. >> yes, i spaared with ali for 4 1/2 years, and he beat me up a few times, i got even with him at the end. neil: you did. >> i beat him up. neil: you did. jim gray. >> without anger. neil: jim, your contribution, someone who watched this, and analyzed it i thought, you asked the nastiest questions of fighter, i always thought someone is going to hit jim right now, i mentioned with ali he made it like, i'm not saying
8:41pm
carnival, but, he certainly changed boxing as we knew it, and since has come to know it. we're almost disappointed after the fact. >> he was so great, and he was so much fun, neil, he made it fun for everyone. larry talked about what he did for the business, but he was also a guy that changed paradigm for all of sports, he was brash when people were not. he was the outgoing, he started all of this trash talking, and people, at the time, some were otended later they loved him, the greatest up stiewlg in the history -- institution of history of boxing and perhaps sports, he lit the torn i torch in 1996, he stood for so much, he was for social justice and change, he was proven right, there was never a guy like this, there will never be another. neil: larry, big thing, jim was talking about there, he lost his title. because he said he was not going
8:42pm
to fight in vietnam, he said he would beat them up but not kill them, larry, what did you think as a y2k boxer in those days in that struggle, whether, he was sending mixed messages to the world in. >> well, he was sending them but i think he was doing theory thing for ha he believed in. he didn't believe in war, i think high should stan by that you know. i don't think we should go there andpite people we don't know. kill people we don't know. i mean, i think ali did the right thing, as far as boxing, he was the man. highest the man. i just arrive -- i used to ride down the street with ali, he would talk to himself, saying ha he was going to say to his opponent, he sawed say i'm bad, i'm bad, i'm pretty i'm this, and all this stuff when there was nobody in the car but us,
8:43pm
guys that worked him. i thought he was the crazy, i thought maybe he it too many fights, maybe i should not be fighting, i might be talking to myself like that one day. i didn't want that. neil: jim, i wond ir, wonder. he would pick a round where an opponent would fall, the reporters following him, did they find him as a carnival act or what was the deal? he was changing boxing, and he put a huge pleasure on other fighters, and they could not keep up on the style front, joe frazier said, el yo uncle tom remark ta ali used. >> it was tough for joe frazier be but ali enthralled, he brought the public along, he put the rear ends in the seats, he
8:44pm
made the career of howard cosell, where would he have been without muhammad ali. neil: i just know jim gray, who is that howard guy. larry, ask you this before. you are amazing, i wanted to know if you recented coming after someone like, that you fought that epic battle with ken norton, when they said had to fight next mandatory challenger you did, you did not avoid anybody, no tankan fights for -- no tin can fights for you, i felt you were never give up your proper respect, maybe because you came after him. >> neil, thank you for saying that, but i hope someone is listening. i became like the forgot kno forgotten fighter, but i had fun being with moment moment, fun being a sparring partner, i had
8:45pm
fun just listening to way he said things, ali of the good at he prowl bridge the reporters with him, there -- he would bridge the eporters with him, there were guys he would pick on, like hard cosell, and howard would pick pack at him, that is why they liked him, whoever thought about a reporter, they thought about aim called him names. ali brought them along. neil: yeah. thank you so much. >> same thing with the fighters. neil: thank you both. >> same thing. >> thank you. neil: all right, i can interrupt you know,. >> appreciate it neil. neil: larry and jim thank you, 50 years ago. every thing about boxing, changed. then came that darn pay-per-view. >> anyway. 7 tax brackets. how would you like 2.

8:50pm
time. i hear that when the great ideas are mentioned then nothing happened. >> well, we should have done this a long time ago, now is not the time, it was wrong thing to do last week or last year. -e have allowed our marginal tax rates on individual side to keep up over 40% on corporate side, 35% at federal level, and 4.8% at state level. so our corporate is 40%. average. neil: you are being conservative, i think people realize surtax and he'll re-- health care related taxes we're in mid 40s here, but are right. it has been creeping up and up, and when you ask those on left, about rich paying fair share, i'm what is it?
